Hi there, I’m Ashley Edmunds and I photograph weddings all over the world but my heart is in Virginia.
I grew up in Richmond, lived in the heart of Shenandoah for 7 years, and then found my way back to Richmond. Once you get to know me, you’ll see I’m a little Richmond obsessed.

Richmond Maymont Engagement | Annie + Adam

December 14, 2022

I wasn’t sure if writing Annie’s birth story was something I’d do but now 3.5 weeks into this mom gig, I realize it’s a story that I may forget and want it to be captured somewhere forever. So writing this down is more for me but I decided to share because I always enjoyed reading […]
